ddilink It backfires anyway, you just can't hear it because the stock mufflers absorb it.

BillyD66 All my FF helmets increase/funnel the sound. Odd but just the way it is for me. Most days it isn't too bad but things like a hangover certainly don't help!! I don't use earbuds because I have BT helmet speakers and listen to music most times riding.

I have the V&H staggered with original baffles.

Hagär Strange issue! I have a 2014 with the Vance & Hines twin slash cut, only "problem" I guess would be that it does have a tendency to backfire on decel at a certain speed. Beyond that it sounds beautiful. Definitely no firecracker sounds.

TheMIghtyOb Cobra swepts here - same thing with my full helmet - After a while it becomes a bit irritating.

twisted_wrench I have Cobra Dragsters and never seem to have any drone issue with either 1/2 or full face helmet on.

mikoloe Go to my garage and look for the video on how to fiberglass wrap the baffles, it makes for a deeper throatier sound.

danblocal399 Thank you for the responses. I agree that at first it is not to bad, but as you ride and according to the rpm it can become extremely annoying. It is not the helmet, it does it with both of my full faces and the people I ride with refuse to get behind me if they have their full face helmet on. At least I am not the only one, now to decide on new pipes.

GumbyDammit I have the exact bike and exhaust and have experienced the same issue. It’s not that it’s crazy loud, but the droning wears on me. I LOVE the sound, but with the full Shoei helmet on I get the same irritating noise.

muskie I run Cobra Swepts and a Bell RS1 full face helmet but ride with earbuds in for music and com system so I don't have an issue. Occasionally, I will ride without the earbuds and find the exhaust too loud for me personally but then I am very conscious about hearing loss.

AZ STRKR I have a 2013 with Cobra Swept Exhaust and run a Nolan modular helmet and haven't noticed your issues. Maybe try a different helmet before changing out the exhaust. Good luck.
